Person of the Year


There’s no question in my mind. Journey deserves the title Person of the Year!

She’s beautiful, funny, clever, endearing, sensitive and has the heart of a killer.

Journey taught herself how to hunt. When she first caught a rat or a mole, she would toss it around and eventually let it escape. Then one day the rat bit her and that was the end of rodent amnesty. She shook the rat real hard and suddenly the rat was dead.

Journey sniffed the rat for a long time and something in her mind clicked. She knew she now had the power of life or death over the unwanted rodents.

I kinda know what to do when I catch a mouse but I just don’t have the killer instinct. Journey will sit real quiet and watch me play with the mouse. When I lose interest, she saunters over and gives the mouse a quick shake and tosses the dead mouse back to me so I can see it’s a goner. It’s always a goner.

Journey is more independent that I am. When we’re in the yard she’s usually off doing her own thing while I’m keeping an eye on Mom. Journey likes to fence fight with the neighbor dog, but I run to Mom when she calls us to stop barking. Journey always has to have the last word so she’s not so quick to come when called.

I know Journey loves me and always has my back, but she’s kinda goofy. If Mom takes me some place and leaves Journey at home, Journey pitches a fit. She howls and cries and carries on because she didn’t get to go and we’re not together.

When Mom brings me home Journey does her happy dance. She sniffs me and loves on me. Then once she’s sure I’m okay, she beats me up. Go figure! It’s not my fault that Mom took me and not her, but when you’re the Diva I guess you see the world through your own eyes.

I’ve never known life at Asherpark without Journey. She raised me and taught me so much about living in this world. When all is said and done, Journey is my choice for Person of the Year because I love her. She’s my bestie and always will be. Here’s to you Journey!
